    Where do you think the generalisations come from, functionally?

    I always picture Te as reducing complexity, narrowing down to generalisations and principles.

    I see Ti as almost emphasising complexity, weaving through from one specific to another specific. Hence why it's considered more pendatic.

    I'm probably wrong though.

    I think the intutiative part is the caused of the generalization. Because to generalize is to predict future outcome via patterns and logical deduction, which NTs enjoy doing.

    Perhaps generalizing is an INJ thing? Cause INFJs do this too, especially myself. Generalizing and general themes is where I thrive.

    Although from I will say that INTJs seem to have better grasp of details than I do.

    I suppose, although I have seen a tendency to generalise amongst all TJs, not so much TPs. I don't see generalising as predicting future outcomes, I see it as making a statement with disregard for detail, seems very TJ to me.

    Its partly, like if you generalize that a certain group is more likely to do certain things, you have an anchor on when you try to figure out a motive of an individual in that group or future actions he/she might take. Since understanding is one of the fundamental goal of NTs, when you have no facts, first impression would be to look at similarity and figure it out from there. Looking at the whole picture(generalizing) before trying to figure the dots that connects it all.

    This website is proof enough. Majority of the people who post here are iNtutiative type.

    1. Yes
    2. Yes
    3. Yes, because it usually stems from the delusion on everyone's part (including us, to be fair) that they are a unique snowflake and the exception to everything.

    I'm not sure whether I do. i get along with a lot of people, but there's some
    I tend to avoid because they get kind of wishy washy and have their own un-
    ique personalities, but they do these mental gymnastics to convince themsel-
    ves that they don't let themselves get led around by the nose and pulled into
    someone else's way of thinking because they don't want to admit that they
    will be with just anybody to be with somebody. Being alone because of your
    opinion not being popular is the worst thing in the world to some people

    I think it is a problem if we generalize emotions..
